Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went through the student's videos on parametric equations. He understands the concepts very well. We will work on more examples on eliminating the parameter, but other than that, he should be in good shape. He has already had a quiz on this material and got 13/15 points, and may decide to retake it next week to get 100%."
"We worked on a major trigonometry assignment, and I shared some useful files that will help him with understanding the unit circle."
"We worked on completing the square and finding the equation of a parabola using vertex form. No major struggles, just small mistakes during practice. Attitude was very good, the student works hard during our lessons. The main strategy was just going over my method for completing the square. "
"We worked on determining the extremes of given graphs and functions. We utilized both graphing calculators and algebraic methods (i.e. derivatives) in determining the critical points for the graphs. She was very attentive and participated actively throughout our session. I plan to review her understanding of this topic in our next session."
"We worked on difference quotient, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of two functions, and their corresponding domain. Guessing two functions whose composition results in a certain function. Calculating inverse functions, determining the symmetry of a given function. Equation of a straight line, parallel and perpendicular to another given straight line."
"We worked on Exponential and Growth factors. Everything was fine, until we got to the word problems and things ground to a halt. I told the student to keep practicing. I told her to keep working on these types of problems for extra practice."
